Boot Windows Vista and WinXP from 2 HDD

By nicksman ·
I have a PC with Windows VISTA Home Premium on a SATA HDD. I have an IDE HDD from another PC with Windows XP installed on. How can I install the second HDD on an external case connected on FireWire (IEE1394) port to the PC with the Windows VISTA and make a dual boot OS?

Astonished for a comprehensive and quick reply. Unfortunately it seems that HP a6210 motherboard is not supporting firewire boot.
